Gagan Narang to win bronze in London Olympics

Gagan Narang who won the first medal for India at Olympics on Monday had less time to celebrate as he was focusing on 50M Air Rifle Prone which is slated to begin today. He was working hard on healing the injury after winning the bronze medal on Monday.

“Gagan pulled a neck muscle, I think during the 10m air rifle final. He didn’t feel the pain that day but he complained about it the next morning,” national coach sunny Thomas told DNA.

Narang who is working on the fitness with his team physiotherapist since Tuesday, also felt he did not find time to cherish the moment, as he was busy healing the injury and focusing on the other events.

His coach, Thomas who is working with Narang and helping him sort out issues ahead of the event on Friday, said, “To remain in that position for more than one hour is tough. His knee is not a big problem anymore. It has been holding up well for last few weeks. We are worried a bit about his neck as it was bothering him a lot on Friday. But it is getting better now. Hopefully, he’ll be fit and ready for Friday.”
